Good Company, Bad Industry

Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

I worked at Raytheon full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood people, great benefits. I hugely enjoyed working with the colleagues I found there. The work was immensely satisfying. The layoff benefits were quite good.

ConsNo emphasis on training, poor career tracking, in an industry (defense) that is currently cratering. Like all big companies, they could be dense and bureaucratic.

Advice to Senior ManagementDiversify beyond the defense industry.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
